The Performance Arcade brings together visual arts and performance in a specially curated ‘exhibition-event’ of live art practices on Wellington Waterfront. An arrangement of shipping containers and scaffold structures provides a temporary architecture for this unique project, housing a bar space, a programme of live music and events, and new performance installations by NZ and International artists. Open 13 hours a day, this event is free to the Wellington public.

The Performance Arcade is an annual Live Art mini-festival and programme of free events located on Wellington Waterfront. Since its inaugural presentation in 2011, The Performance Arcade has become a highly anticipated event with an ever-increasing international profile. In 2014 the Arcade was presented as part of the prestigious New Zealand Festival.

 

Using a series of architecturally arranged shipping containers, The Performance Arcade creates a series of spaces for installation, performance art, sonic art, interactive media, forums and live music. Opening onto the bustling life of the Wellington Waterfront, these sites of encounter engage the public in contemporary art and performance practices outside the familiar constraints of gallery or theatre spaces. This free event is at once playful and engaging. It is a site of discovery and interaction, offering the public a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in relevant and new Live Art experiences.

 

The event is open for thirteen hours each day and is curated to offer activities that range in scale from small, personal artistic encounters to live music and AV installation performed under the night skies. The 2014 event involved 39 artists, 42 musicians and 24 crew. In 2014 close to 10,000 people experienced the Arcade over five days.

    Our story

    Over the history of entertainment, each new media format to emerge has represented a step forward in immersion and presence.
    Immersive video is arguably the culmination of this evolution, a media format in which consuming content is becoming indistinguishable from having real life experiences.

    We've been making & developing 360° media content & delivery - & we're now the most prolific & effective 360° content producer in New Zealand.  We’ve made innovative new media for over 20 years… we anticipate 360° immersive content & integrated augmented reality is a new paradigm in media.

    Our team have extensive collective experience in concept, capture & delivery of technology & media systems & content; we are not an alternative to a conventional design or production company - we are nonconformist, schismatic & eccentric: & we enjoy what we do - we specialise in 360° media content production.

    We predicted that 360° media content would become more accessible with social & commercial demands & as the technology advanced... we realised that the market would quickly demand effective production that could foresee the requirements of the audience & clients; develop a unique process for content production & creation; & deliver an effective product - not just a novelty.

    So the task was to develop a methodology that fulfilled four essential elements:

    • concept - ideas, concepts & choreography in 360° media; storytelling; interactive;
    • capture - unique methods & choreography in capture; UAV [drones], RCV [remote controlled vehicles] & custom rigs; & live broadcast streaming;
    • creative - innovation & interactivity; developing & creating 360° media environments; AR / VR interactive environments;
    • delivery - multi platform [desktop, headset, etc]; trade show & commercial application; & live broadcast streaming.
